Hello paddling friends.
I have an NDK Explorer which I do enjoy, but I am 5'8", 170 (+or−5) and the boat feels really big on me. Highly unlikely I would ever have to pack a boat for camping more than 4 days. Maybe 5 days tops. Will the Pilgrim hold a 170 man plus 60 pounds of gear? I have paddled the Pilgrim and it's a really good fit if I remove the hip pads. But I can't find max capacity specs for that kayak in any website or publication.
